BitPico, which previously carried out a stress test of the Lightning Network, begins to 'attack' Bitcoin Cash (BCH). This is reported by Bitcoinist.

In a series of tweets, which began publication on June 22, the group announced that after testing the Lightning network through a coordinated attack, it intends to do the same for Bitcoin Cash, this time attempting to perform the attack 51%.

The [Bitcoin Cash] attack has been started; it will continue to run as we work to amplify it over the coming months. We expect to have 5000 Bcash attack nodes in roughly 6 weeks and then we will multi-fork the chain. [Roger Ver] will now cry.

BitPico are known as a supporters of the Bitcoin Scaling Solution SegWit2x. After this initiative failed, the group went 'undergroup' and showed itself only in March, when it began to attack the Lightning network.

We are no longer retired from bitcoin; just needed a break. We are bullish and working on the LightningNetwork.

BitPico, who previously won the praise of Andreas Antonopoulos for the free testing of bitcoin technology, intend to put an end to the discussion about the practical applicability of Bitcoin Cash.

We can just mine the transaction ourselves and drop the merchants zero-conf Tx from our stratum backed mempool. We don’t think the [BitcoinCash] people understand how easy it is to bring their network down.

Previously, Bitcoin Cash supporters conducted their own stress test, which was criticized by BitPico for "centralized and controlled and will be faked," they suggested.

Despite the "threats of murder" and curses from Bitcoin Cash fans, BitPico is not going to abandon the attack on the network and plan to create own fork called bitPicoCash.

To organize the attack, a separate repository on GitHub was created, which BitPico promises to begin filling in the near future.

Bitcoin Cash Hardfork Implemented

Hardfork of a hardfork... just don't get confused in this crazy world of cryptocurrency

Today, on November 15, a hardfork was implemented in the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) network. The first block in the Bitcoin ABC blockchain has mined a pool of Bitcoin.com.

The last “common block” was # 556,766, mined by SVPool. on which the protocol update was activated.

Bitcoin SV got its first block. Now we can definitely talk about the division of Bitcoin Cash into two competing blockchains. Roger Ver, right before the hardfork, said that his pool had sent a significant amount of power to mining Bitcoin ABC.

Bitfinex exchange announced the transfer of BAB and BSV coins to the accounts of BCH holders.

Poloniex converted all BCH balances into assets BCHABC and BCHSV. At the same time, the BCH market became unavailable. Instead, the BCHABC / BTC, BCHSV / BTC, BCHABC / USDC and BCHSV / USDC trading pairs appeared. I / O of BCHABC and BCHSV is not yet available, but will open when the network stabilizes.
